The human skeleton known as Marc Anthony and his wife Jennifer Lopez held a news conference in NYC yesterday afternoon where Marc was introduced as a partial owner of the Miami Dolphins. The Miami Dolphins have been trying to get in position to sell tickets and have targeted their community whose majority is Latino. Gloria Estefan was introduced as partial owner earlier this year. This is what Marc told People magazine,
“It would have probably been cheaper just to buy season tickets!” “I’m a huge sports fan and these oppertunities don’t come around too often. It’s quite an honor and a privilege to be able to sit here today saying that I’m a part-owner of an NFL team.”
Majority owner Stephen Ross discussed how Marc became involved with the Dolphins.
“We spoke for quite a while about his vision for the team and it was just intoxicating. Marc’s a pretty bright guy and he has a lot of interesting ideas. We’re trying to do something different and he was thinking outside the box. I thought it would be a great fit and fun to do something.”
All Miami Dolphins fans can do is hope that there won’t be any halftime shows centered around Marc Anthony performing anything at all…not even the star spangled banner……for serious.
For those who don’t know who Dante Stallworth is here’s the rundown: Stallworth is a 28 year old NFL wide receiver currently playing for The Cleveland Browns. As if that couldn’t be bad enough, on March 14th 2009 in Florida while driving his black 2005 Bentley he accidentally killed a man while under the influence of alcohol. Stallworth plead guilty in court to a DUI manslaughter charge which carried a possible 15 year prison sentence. Due to a plea deal Stallworth was sentenced to 30 days in prison, which starts today, 8 years probation, 1000 hours of community service, a lifetime driver’s license suspension, and 2 years house arrest, with the exception of his duties to the NFL. Stallworth’s blood alcohol level on the night of the incident was .126 which is greatly higher then Florida’s limit of .08.
This is an unfortunate thing to happen but I can’t hate Dante Stallworth. Once the police arrived at the accident Stallworth cooperated fully and admitted everything. Many people questioned his sentence compared to fellow NFL player/ inmate Michael Vick’s sentence but we have to remember something, Dante Stallworth made a giant mistake but he was a honest about it. Michael Vick purposely abused and killed dogs all the while lying to the publics’ faces and playing innocent. Stallworth stood up and accepted the consequences for his actions and for that this blunts for you Dante….drinking and driving really isn’t the smartest idea, when you have more than enough money to hire a driver but everyone makes their own choices and we don’t judge
